    I have been a member all my life.

    And I have seen the beauty and happiness it brings into my life and the lives of others. I feel complete. People say, "Well you only think that way cause you were born into it." Well it's not. I have constantly prayed and read the scriptures asking God if this church is true. I...

    Covenants Are A Marriage Contract

    Men judge what they see, but God sees something much different. What is a marriage contract? What is a covenant? These things are outward signs to God and the world that speak nothing of the heart. Oh, we need to do our saving ordinances because they are commandments... but...

    Jack-mormon Problems.

    I think of myself as a Jewish Mormon; Jewish tradition mixed in with the Mormon religion. But ever since I got old enough to leave home, I've stopped going to church. I don't know why - maybe it's the tediousness of sitting still in a building for three hours. It hasn't stopped...

    I've shared this fact in similarly titled
